Today we have enjoyed our last day together for a while. It feels so strange because we aren’t certain when we will be back, but please be assured that we will be back together soon.
We love reading and sharing books and know that often the characters in our stories face a really difficult problem and have to struggle and do extraordinary things to overcome it. That is what we are doing now and we hope that soon we will come to the happy ending that we are all longing for.
Many of you are worried that a really nasty bug is making people ill. We are so lucky to have some really clever scientists who are working hard to overcome the bug. We also have some superhero doctors and nurses who are really good at making people better. It is really important that we help them to do their jobs.
The Prime Minister and the scientists have asked us all to help them by staying apart for a while and I know that you all love helping in any way you can. This is going to feel a little strange at first but we really must do it.
Your teachers are going to be working differently for a while too. They will be setting you work to do at home. Keep working hard and try your best to do the work that is set for you.
You are going to be spending a lot of time at home with your families. Remember to be kind to your siblings and to do what your mum and dad tell you to do. Maybe you could impress your family by doing some jobs around the home to help out!
Don’t forget to phone your grandparents to check that they are ok too. It is perfectly normal to feel a little worried as this is very different to normal. If you do have a worry remember to tell someone, don’t keep it to yourself and you will start to feel better.
Your teachers and I are really going to miss you all but we are really looking forward to welcoming you back to school soon. We can’t wait for the time when we are able to play together on our new field in the sunshine.
With very best wishes to you and your families
